Taylor & Francis to Preserve E-Books in Portico

Portico is pleased to announce that it has entered into a license 
agreement with Taylor & Francis Group to preserve the publisher's 
entire collection of e-books.  With this agreement, Taylor & 
Francis expands its relationship with Portico, which began in 
2006 with the publisher's commitment to deposit its entire list 
of e-journals to the Portico archive.

Taylor & Francis, an Informa business, is a leading international 
academic publisher whose book portfolio includes the imprints 
Taylor & Francis, Routledge, CRC Press, Garland Science, and 
Psychology Press.

The addition of Taylor & Francis' titles brings the total number 
of e-books committed to the Portico archive to approximately 
66,000.  Beginning in 2011, Portico will expand the preservation 
services offered to libraries with the introduction of separate 
e-book and e-journal services. These distinct services will 
enable libraries to choose where to invest their preservation 
resources based on their collections, needs and budgets.

Since 2005, the number of titles and types of content preserved 
in Portico has grown significantly. To date, close to 12,000 
e-journals, 66,000 e-books, and 13 digitized historical 
collections have been entrusted to the Portico archive.  For a 
complete list of Portico-related facts and figures, please visit
